|Route outline (key)|
The B6391 forms a link between the A666 and the A676 via Chapeltown and Bromley Cross. Much of this route is quiet, being primarily a local route between villages, but the southern section in the suburbs of Bolton can be rather busier. The road was originally unclassified but presumably gained its number in the mid-1920s.
Leaving the A666 at a narrow junction which racked up numerous casualties in the past, the route heads south-east through woodland, looking remarkably like a higher quality Scottish single-track road since recent resurfacing work. Eventually the road enters the village of Chapeltown and crosses a difficult junction with local roads before heading south once more towards Bromley Cross and the eventual terminus. We pass Bromley Cross station before ending at a T-junction on the B6472; turn left for the A676.
